5:04 pm
take a look at this. this is one of the red light cameras here at k and 25th northwest. the reason we're here is because this neighborhood is generated a whole lot of questions about the camera systems in general, specifically, the ones way down in this tunnel down here. this is where washington circle goes underneath the circle, and a lot of people start speeding up in that area. and a lot of people have been getting particular nets this area. these are dc drivers, remember, not people who live out of the area and complaining about the local district laws. why is this important? well, councilwoman mary has identified 14 cameras in this city that generate over a million dollars a year. understanded, there are 98 cameras throughout the district, they have pulled in in all $100 million. so what happens if they look at these? they decide to move some of them, decide to get rid of them? even if they were to cut that $100 million in half, councilwoman chase says they

money somewhere, but she thinks if they need to do it, it is the right thing to do. >> could we make it up? yes, we could. but here is the thing. and your question provocks me on this point: i want an explanation for these cameras if they can be explained, fine. but i want an explanation, because i don't want the public to think that we're trying to, you know, steel their money. >> all right, this has been an ongoing problem. understanded, it is not the first time a council member has said that they're going to look into this. but this is a little bit different. these are complaints that are coming from dc residents. not people of virginia. not people in maryland. and why that is key, the councilwoman says she has questioned about this. she want to know if cameras are placed fairly. are they too high? are they too low? is there sign and there that lets drivers know what they needo

5:07 pm
transportation, they've got a comprehensive website. this is it right here. it has a map laying out each and everyone of these cameras throughout the district, you don't need to be surprised by this, you don't need to run into these finds and incur all of this money. so where does this go from here? welshing councilwoman chase says that she sent off this letter, hasn't gotten an answer back yet, we should tell you that. once she does, she will look at the data. she may decide later on whether or not they need to holds a round of hearings about what's going on with these cameras. live on k street tonight, tom fitzgerald, fox5 local news. ten new road project are coming to i66 in northern virginia, when all is said and done it, will help move about 5,000 more people through the corridor during rush hour. series of ongoing improvement are expected where i66 meets express lanes, the highway will also be wide ends, eastbound, from the dullos toll road to boston. governor of virginia says they're focused on reducing congestion

5:13 pm
there is than a month. >> slightly weakening, but still imagine or hurricane. maria hit the southeastern side of puerto rico as category four storm this morning, brought winds of 155 miles per hour and unforgiving rain. officials say the entire islands currently without power. we want to talk to someone who is in puerto rico right now. >> diana at a hospital in san juan, tend to go her mother who had medical emergency. diana, first thing, how is your mother doing right now? i can imagine this is just another problem you're dealing with on top of everything going on with you. >> hi, yes, she is stable right now. it has been very lard to see since the emergency, but very stable, and the staff has been very, very a tentative to all of the patient here today. so for that i'm very grateful. >> and diane, a i think we're seeing pictures you sent into our news room of the hospital where your mother is at t seemed like one of the windows there had broken in, can you talk about the conditions and how the hospital is faring given that majority of the islands now without
5:14 pm
>> yes, everything basically started around 2:00 a.m., and the winds started really picking up. so by, i would say, like between 6:30 and 7:00 that's when i started hearing the door, my mom's room. and it kind of like popped. and that's all the sudden i ran, you know, to the nurse's station, saw get out there immediately. that's what they did. they came and got both patient, my mom and another patient out quickly. the staff like i said is very accommodating, under the circumstances, i know, it has been very hard for them to work, but they've been very accommodating and making sure that all of the patients are very well cared for. for that i'm very, i'll be very ' turnly grateful. but i will be honest with you, i would not wish this on my worsen any. the worse hurricane i've ever been in, i used to live in the islands years ago, and the building was shaking. i was so scared. he was petrified. the only thing that cons
5:15 pm
me is that well if anything were to happen i'm with my mother, you know? you know, if god were to call us he will call us together because i really thought the builds working collapse. >> and somebody -- >> i real did i. >> somebody who has been through hurricanes before, how would you describe the whole preparedness, the whole getting ready for a storm that you knew was coming, but obviously you can't predict the damage it caused? >> yes. i believe they tried to prepare as much as they could. but i do not believe that they would totally prepared for what came. i don't believe that, you know, they really, really felt the seriousness of what was to happen. but i, myself, did not think it was going to be as strong as it was. i mean, it was -- it was strong. >> diana -- >> i'm standing outside now, on sixth floor of the stairwell, and still wind going, but you can see the devestation, the trees are down. but there is people already venturing out, which the local police have told us not to go out to the street. they will be arrested. but there is people venturing ou
5:16 pm
already. devestation here. >> there is, and this is just the city. i can only imagine the mountain area. >> all right, diana. >> i kindly request, you know, if people could donate and sends things over, i would highly appreciate it, because my country really needs everybody right now. >> thank you, we hope your mother gets better. of course sending our well wishes over to puerto rico. of course the big question now is where is maria headed next? of course sue palka here with us. sue, any potential of this coming a little farther toward the east coast, still too soon to tell? >> down the road still going to have to watch it. by down the road i mean next week. but where it is right now, just little bit off the coast of puerto rico. about 25 miles off the coals. but where diana was describing, still the back side in hurricane conditions on the far south side of this hurricane. hurricane maria is the second strongest hurricane to ever hit puerto rico. first, was a cat five. that was in 1928. so, it has been a long time, and
5:17 pm
distressed by what irma was able to do, that was not a direct hit. so category four hit. the trip across the island has weakens it now to category two. it is moving northwest at 12, with winds of 110 miles per hour, big concern now for puerto rico, now that the worse of the winds is over, the rain is incredible, and catostrophic, with 20-25 inches of rain possible. maybe as much as 35, as you notice, i'm not showing you the radar picture out of puerto rico. that was also taken out by the lack of power and the strong winds earlier today. so it will be a while before we get that restored, i'm sure. so going forward, it looks like it is to stays north and east of the dominican republic, that's great. but they could get quite a bit of rain. the turks and caikos, the bahamas, also could get a lot of rain. as you can see, the cone keeps it away from the islands, although certainly they'll have the winds and rain. marina was asking about next week. you can see, monday, it is still out here as a
5:18 pm
forecast a strengthening to category three, which gets it back to up major status, as early as friday. so, still some warm water to be found. we check out these spaghetti mod tolls see what the future of the hurricane may be down the road, and there is some reason to be a little concerned next week to be perfectly honest, jim, marina. most models take it up the east coast, and not showing a landfall. but one or two have kind of started edging these spaghetti models, plots little farther to the west, closer to the coast, and you know we check two mod else in particular very closely, the american model, and the european mod nel red. they keep the storm, again, east of the islands, east of florida, thank god for that. now sunday at 6:00, still pretty good agreement, but look what happens as we go into monday. the american model a little bit faster. we still have got jose out there as a tropical storm. not sure what impact that will have. obviously not landfall here, close enough to some of these outer bands in the europea
5:19 pm
the coast for comfort next week. so, bottom line: we will continue to watch maria. but right now, i don't think we're looking at landfall for the foreseeable future, just huge amount of banged up islands as this thing has been charging across the caribbean, puerto rico getting the most disastrous hit of all, that's for sure. jim, sarah, that's the very latest, we'll have a seven day forecast, your summer day seven day, coming up in a few minutes. by the way, i know you're marina. >> i know you know. >> just a test. thanks, sue. >> coming up, massage therapist charged with sexually assaulting a female client. >> tonight he is facing new charges after yet another victim comes forward with similar accusations. >> i was involved with kevin hart a month ago. since then, my pictures and my name has been released and lies written about me. >> and comedian kevin hart's alleged accuse steps forwards with high powered lawyer. how she is responding to claims she tried to extort money from the funny man. but first here is gary
